Hello everyone. I’m rebuilding my contractor saw. What I’m looking for is the pivot screw, bolt that goes through the motor mount that holds the motor up when the belt is off. I’ve checked online for the part but can’t seem to locate it. Any suggestions where I may find one or what to use to make one. It’s 1/4×20 thread but where it goes through the mount is a larger diameter. Any info would be appreciated, thank you.

There isn’t a part number for it, checked everywhere online. The manual shows it in the motor base. I have a bolt through it now but am worried it will wear through because the diameter is smaller than the pivot slot.

Give us a real model number… Emerson made a lot of different saws for Sears, so it is impossible to determine what you are looking for otherwise.

Thanks guys for wanting to help. I actually found what I was looking for in the pile of nuts and bolts from the rebuild. All is good now. I could use some advice on a new fence system to put on the saw without breaking the bank ! Was looking at the Delta T3. Any thoughts ?

I used that fence on my 113. Mine was one of the flex drive models. The Delta fence made a night and day difference to the performance of the saw. I had to drill some new holes to mount the fence rails, but drilling CI is pretty easy.

In the end, the fence was the best part of the saw. The motor was under powered so I sold it when I upgraded to a cabinet saw.

I have a craftsman 113.xx and put on the Delta T3 I’m more of a hobbyist, but I’ve been pleased with it so far.

Have your say...
